New Commitment





New Commitment

The architects of this vision, President Gary Ransdell and an engaged and supportive Board of Regents, have made a firm commitment to complete this transformation. This is a rare opportunity for WKU to build on the momentum of an entrepreneurial spirit and innovative leadership. A successful team of on- and off-campus leaders is in place.

A strong resolve binds WKU’s alumni, faculty, the corporate community, and friends to achieve the vision. Now the University is engaged in a campaign which will cap a remarkable period in the University’s history, fulfill the promise of a bold new attitude and a transformed campus, and launch a new and promising era in its second century of service and learning.
